RCC Motorcycle Rider Safety Classes Cover Important Skills

ARCHDALE (April 3, 2018)

As the weather warms, motorcycle enthusiasts will be getting their bikes ready for the road for spring and summer riding. Whether you are an experienced rider or considering taking up the hobby this year, Randolph Community College’s “Beginning Motorcycle Rider Safety” course covers basic skills and beyond, teaching students how to correctly deal with situations that they hope never happen.

In the classroom, students will be given information on how to ride properly. Outside, students will practice and develop skills by riding in a controlled environment. A motorcycle and helmet will be furnished. The DMV waives the driving skills exam for students who have successfully completed this course.

RCC’s classes meet from 6-10 p.m. on Thursday evening for classwork, then students are in class from 8 a.m.- 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, riding the course and learning the use of the motorcycle.

Upcoming dates include April 19-22, May 10-13, June 7-10, July 26-29, and August 16-19. The $175 fee includes all materials, use of bike, and accident insurance. The classes are held at RCC’s Archdale Center at 110 Park Drive.
